Revolutionary Rocker records his first Full Length record! Help this d.i.y guy bring his piano based electro rock to the masses:
Hello! I'm a solo, do-it-yourself (DIY) artist: I play all instruments, record, produce & mix my songs alone. My self-released EP's were bedroom recordings, meant to be demos, meant to be one album but with the limited resources I've had this was all I could do. I'm proud of them but they can be so much better!
Donate as little as $1 and you'll get an all access pass to the creative process & a ticket to the Celebratory Birthday Performance Stream in September! Being a solo artist is a great joy & responsibility but it's very lonely: I'll be looking for your feedback, input & sometimes, just someone to celebrate with or share in the struggles.
Can't wait for the record? Neither can I! Every supporter who donates at least $10 will get not just the new record weeks before release but all of the previous song versions to hold them over, to compare, contrast and get them as psyched about this as I am. This will be your last chance to get these recordings as I'll be scraping the internet clean of them, you'll be the last to download them and the first to get the new ones.
All funds raised will go to many awesome things:
Studio Time at Desert Park in mid-town Manhattan, Production/Mixing by James 'Boone' McElroy, Mastering at Salt Mastering by Paul Gold, Drummer Brendan Finnegan, CD Design by Jason Rand (formerly of Tommy Boy Records), Printing 1,000 CD's & 3 Different Posters, Music video by William Murray (Calculated/Destruction/Futile & Fooled)
Thank you for your support and the confidence you've given me to launch this massive project, it's been a long time in the making and the moment is NOW. Here's to the great start we've had & the hard work to be done!
p.s. For every reward listed to the right, you'll also get all the previous ones as well (except for one of a kind items). The delivery date refers to the listed reward, please see below for more details on how/when each one will be available. THANK YOU!
Current Track List: 1. The Worst Part 2. Destruction 3 Unruddered 4. Imposter 5. Idealize the Dead 6. Calculated 7. Polarity 8. The Thawing 9. I Am Not 10. Futile & Fooled

As a d.i.y solo artist, there's only so much I can do at once. Therefore, I'm trying to realistically spread out the rewards so you know when you'll get what you so very much deserve!
August 13: All the digital downloads of previous work (EP's, remixes, instrumentals) will come to you immediately upon funding of the record. Score!
Sept 13: The official live stream performance will be sometime in September, after I've finished the recording (hopefully) - for now, I'm shooting to perform on September 10th - my birthday!
Sept 13: All printed materials (postcards, photos, posters) will go out in September - I'll need a few weeks to get all the printing done and organize the shipping info.
October 13: The t-shirt may not come until October, I'll be spending some time properly designing and printing these, I hope I can get them to you with the posters in Sept but this one isn't entirely in my control.
January 14: The official 'Full Length' record will most likely be available (for download or CD) in January - this will be 2-3 weeks before the official release though the first single 'Imposter' will be yours a week before the video release, hopefully in November! Plans still taking shape...
Thanks so much for your support & patience, I'm incredibly hard working, determined and passionate but there's only so much I can do alone - I am in awe of you and will be at it double-time to do your faith justice.
How awesome are YOU?!
